Question to the Expert
Recently I reinstalled the operating system on my Windows 10 PC. Out of the blue the Google Chrome browser started to freeze and pages open very slowly. Why is this happening?
Mike Lombardi
One of the main reasons for freezing and slow work is an overflowing cache. To clear data, press Ctrl+Shift+Delete while in Chrome. On the new page, select the time interval and the data you want to delete. Then press the "Clear data" button.

Sometimes the issue is due to an outdated version of Chrome. To update it:

  • open the menu (three dots in the top right corner),
  • hover over Help,
  • click About Google Chrome.
Chrome will automatically start checking for updates

In some cases browser speed slows down due to malware. Scan your computer for viruses and remove any harmful software you find. You can use Chrome’s built-in tool for that.
